Here I am, getting all techy sith my mic, baffles to absorb sound and a rather neat podcasting platform called Buzzsprout. the intent? To draw people to this website and encourage them to download books.
it’s quite addictive, actually. Choosing extracts to read, getting the head around presentation, music underpinnings, the arts of sound shaping with various effects like ’fade-in’, ’fade out’ and ‘sound normalisation’. But the big one is the actual reading! Do I put on voices? Do I heavily dramatise?
In the end I have opted for a nuanced narrative voice, no character accents, but building up a style that is clear but allows the reader to impose her/his own interpretive subjectivity. I think I’m getting better at it.
If you’d like to listen, go to the following link: https://hisauthorsvoice.buzzsprout.com/ and I hope it entertains you!
